Eat Like Julian Edelman at Santouka Ramen After the Patriots Parade
There are a lot of ways to celebrate the New England Patriots’ insane Super Bowl comeback, whether you’re catching the parade or just holing up for some beers later on. But given the bleak weather today, might we suggest some warming—and discounted—ramen? It’s probably what Julian Edelman wants for lunch.
Santouka Ramen’s karamiso bowl is a favorite of the Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, a rep for the restaurant says, so today, the local outposts have a hookup. The Catch, a combo order of cha-shu gohan pork rice and a small helping of the spicy ramen, is on special for $11 today, in Edelman’s honor. No. 11 himself is a regular at the Back Bay location, according to the restaurant, so the team there wanted to gear a celebratory special toward his game-clinching catch.
If you’re watching the parade and need to duck out from the ice and snow, Santouka Ramen in Back Bay is just a quick detour away. Or, you could avoid the crowds altogether: The special is also available at Santouka in Harvard Square.
The ramen shop isn’t the only local spot honoring the Patriots on their menus today. In Downtown Crossing, Mast’ is offering a themed cocktail menu called Drive for 5, with drinks like Roger Goodell on the Rocks, and the 4th Quarter Comeback Cosmo, and it’s serving a free plate of truffle fries to diners donning Patriots jerseys. Top of the Hub is also offering a complimentary glass of bubbly to lunch and dinner guests today.
